TBE CBBAM CITY OF THE WEST. A Straage Pheneasaaon That Beeentlr Oe-;;--vv:5sasie*.at;hUlwaakee. -I Special Correspondence.] -MlLWAOSKE, Wis.. April 17:b. We are still in existenoe.despite the prognostication of California's prophet, Erlcksoo, who solemnly averred that 3.in Fraaeiseo, Oakland, Chioago and Mil-wabkee would' be destroyed by an earthquake on tbe 14tb inst. Pieviooe to the day of doom certain phenomena led the orodolous to believe that these were but indication* of the fulfillment of the dire prediction and awaited the crack of doom io fear aad trembling. Tbe first phenomenon occurred three weeks ago. At 2 o'clock in the morning, while tbe city was wrapped in slumber, the few pedeetrisns who possessed lofty aspirations, or were engagod in astronomi-oal obseivsttons, were awed by beholding Lane, tbe center of a luminous cross. It was a ssene of dszzliog brilliancy, and as the spell bound spectators gazed, the beautiful transfiguration passed away and Luna, surrounded by ber galaxy of worshiping attendants, pursued her way through the jeweled dome. It was truly a wondrous sight, and will never be forgotten by those who witnessed it. On the 12th inst an unusual disturbance was noticeable in the waters of Lake Michigan. Although tbe sky was cloudless and tbe winda were whist, old Neptune evidently was abroad with his trident, inciting a war of the elements, for the bosom of the vast expanse of waters was exceedingly turbulent Far as the eye conld reanb the turgid, foam crested waves rose up as if impelled by by sume subterranean genei end tossed the vessels riding at anchor In tumultuous glee. 1 hen, as if disappointed-' in not engulfing their prey, they rushed madly^sbore ward and snapped their angry jaws as tbey dashed upon tbe beaoh, in rapid succession, scattering the foam in every direction. Suddenly tbe wild breakers receded; the great upheaving oessed, the water lay unruffled; the vessels spread their white pinions, looking like immense sea gnlls as tbey silently awept away. It was truly atrange, and excited comment from all who were so for.unate as to behold it. Her* is one . version of this seemingly - unaccountable phenomenon. Old Neptune, like Joe Gargery'* wife in "Great Expectations," was on a rampage when he suddenly recalls bis forgotten siesta, decide* to postpone hi* war until some more convenient time, begins to dose, drops his trident and consequently oalm ensue*. Scientist* will probably not agree with met but I do not claim to take soient'fle view of the matter. Tbe Hth came and went and the water did not swallow and thus obliterate us from the face of tbe earth, according to tbe program so kindly arranged by fanatic Erloksen, who now languishes In an asylum in Stockton, Cal. His predlotlon was but the product of a fevered imagination. Our day of doom, was perfectly glorious. "Horn, waked by the oiroling hours, with rosy: baud* unbarred the gates of light," and the King of day'a regal chariot awept through flooding the laud with liquid radiance. Away at tbe golden gate the gentle zephyrs wafted the perfume of the orange blossom* afar aa tbe aun pursued his way through tbe heavens. At Isst his smile touobed Lake Iliobigau and gilded tbe spire* and domes of tbe Cream City. It waa an exceedingly broad smile and as be kiased the rippling wstera tbey returned tba aalBtatloa aad clapped their band* for joy at tba grMtuT- Higher and higher ho rose, bissing iht; dew drops from ettal) tiny blade of grass and : wakening iho aiuinbering oily to activity aud the re-aumptioo of every. dsy'a routine. From morn till eve no cloud intercepted his genial rays. As Pompeii and Hercnlaneum were gay on the ere of tbeir destruction by tbe ter. rinle eruption of Vesuvius in '79, su the Cream City, with llie prophesied calamity, like D void bovmiug ovir it, seetned more binlmiit than usual. As in Pompeii the ampitucater^ waa thronged by the ('leisure sm king populace, ao here tbe various placea -of amusemeont had their full quota or attendance. Vows were made; secrets disolosed to confidents; the story that is ever new was told; tbe gentle maidens Indulned as usoai tu their sweetest smiles and most brilliant repattee: the. hum of industry never coased; the new eleotric street oats: con timed to vomit forth sparks as they sped through tbe city, causing the docile horses to oavort, piroui'ttc and waltz to the moat approved style to tbe evident enjoyment of the driveit; tbe big breweries in the meantime were as bueily engaged in plying their vocation as though an earthquake bad no terrois for theni. My impression is that Milwaokeeaus are not easily discouctrted, and poor Ericksen's prophecy had little effect. Improvements are constantly being made here. The site of the new poet of' fiee has been aelcbted, : The building will be a magnificent structure, costing 13,000,. 000. At the present rapid rate of advance ment tbe Cream City will soon join tbe foremost ranks. To-night the ladies of SnmmerfleU H. E Church give a Nautical Banquet in tbe ohuroh parlors. Tbe waiters will be attired m sailor costumes aud the whole affair will remind one forcibly of "Old Ocean's gray aud melancholy w.iste." Fioh will ba served in at! imaginable ways. The menu cards, cut iu the shape of lobsters and fish, are beautifully hand-painted and make the loveliest souvenir* im-agineable. Of course, the views are all marine and are exquisitely executed.

Kvlley, tbe electrician, at bis home on West Park ttreet, baa a wonderful olook In operation, whioh is intended for tbe new Normal School building. There Is nothing about tbe appearance of tbe olodtj to indicate tbat it is more than an ordinary time piece, but concealed within the oaken case are mechanical applianoee wbieb when used in connee'ion with tbe battery causes it to do almost miraculous things. Tbe clock ia Kelley's program olook and is entirely different from any others in use. The wires will be connected with eight large bells in sa many different placea in tbe big school building and the time-piece as now arranged ia capable of making automatically thirty-six calls. At 10:30 p. m. the clock automatically oats itself out from the electrlo eiiauit and remains in tbat manner until the next morning atwbatever hour the first call Is desired. Any or sll of the calls can be cut out, und any teaoher can be summoned from the room of the Principal by the ar-rangemeut of a code of signals. There ia alas a general alarm which can be sounded when desired, as, fur instance, in ease of fire. The elock ia a correct time-keeper, and as tbe switches are all inside tbe ease the mechanism cannot be tampered with. Mr. Kelley has also perfected an electric olook lor hotels by iwbich any guest in any room in the house may be called automatically at any hour desired. Lost Bis Life Im the Fleas st Early yesterday morning, aaya to-day'a Oatettt and Bulletin, the village of Lalrds-ville waa thrown into a state of excitement by Bra being discovered in tbe general store' of Hiram Cronse.

Worst of all Mr. Cronse, who slept in the building, waa burned to death, the flames having overtaken him before be oonldes-eape. Qis aharred remains were found iu the ruins after the fire bad burned Itself out. Mr. Grouse was about sixty Ave years old, and waa quite prominent In affairs at Lairdsville. The loss is placed at about 12,000, on whloh there la an Insurance of (1,500. The origin of tbe fire Is a mystery, tba only theory advanced being that a broken lamp may have started It. A Oar Inspector Injured-James E. Eberhart, a ear inspector in the lower freight yard this oity, waa injured yesterday afternoon while in the performance of hia duties. A heavy pieee of wood called "bolster" fell noon one of his feet, bruising it badly.
